Hershey’s kisses have played a roll in our story from the beginning. Jared made them significant shortly after we started dating. When we got married we had to have Hershey’s kisses at our wedding. And this year I decided we needed to include some kisses in our holiday decor.
So I came up with a fun rustic Hershey’s Kiss Christmas Garland to add to our Christmas tree.
All you need to make this chocolate Christmas light garland is Hershey kisses (Or hugs) in your desired color. You can easily use a mix of colors. Twine or ribbon, plastic wrap, and washi tape.
This garland is really fast and easy to make. My 2-year-old had fun sitting with me and eating kisses while I put the lights together.
- Plastic Wrap
- Washi Tape
Making the Kiss Garland
First cut the plastic wrap in squares for the desired number of lights. Each of my garlands has 6 lights.
To get my plastic squares I pulled the plastic out until it was a big square, cut it and then cut that square into four smaller squares.
Then take two kisses, I decided I really liked the looks of the Candy Cane Kisses. So those are the kisses I’m using.
Put the flat end of the two kisses together. Then put one pointed end into the middle of the plastic square.
Wrap the plastic up and around the kisses, leaving a tail at one of the “light” shaped kisses.
Wrap the tail tightly with a piece of washi tape. I really liked the look of the Silver Washi Tape but you can use any color. Then trim off the extra plastic.
Tie the twine/ribbon around each light. Spacing them out as desired. Mine are about 4 inches apart.
Then put a drop of hot glue on the back of the twine/ribbon to keep the candy lights from slipping out.
You can also use the hot glue to make cute little rings on each end so it’s easy to hang the kiss Christmas lights.
This Kiss Christmas Garland also makes a fun friend and neighbor gift.
